There are numerous options for electric vehicle chargers available in the market and the variety is only increasing. With an influx in the electric vehicle market with more people buying it, the electric charging station market is also experiencing a boom. At some point, there will be a boom in services for ev charging station installation.

Among the varieties, a lot of people are choosing 240 Volt Charging Station for their electric vehicle. It is also called a Level 2 charging station. Here’s how you can install a 240 Volt for your electric vehicle:

  1. Ensure that all your permits are in place, especially if you live in a shared residential complex. It is always good to check if any paperwork is required.
  2. To install an EC charging station, you need to purchase a charging station and bear the installation cost. You may also have to pay the subscription cost periodically. The government provides some grants for buying an EV car charger, make sure to check that before buying the charging station.
  3. The next step is to choose the location, it is preferable to choose a place close to where you’ll park your EV. This is because the cables used to charge the EV are not longer than 5 to 10 meters. Moreover, EV owners are not allowed use extension leads and it is not safe to have cables running across a long distance to where the EV is parked.
  4. Once you’re ready with all of the above, you can hire a qualified professional for EV charging station installation.

We do not recommend anyone to do EV car charging station installation themselves as it can become a safety hazard.
